Cancelling Summit order.... Nor Cal
 
Just an FYI for anyone who might be interested. I am about to cancel my Summit order. It was placed on January 26, so I imagine it will be moving pretty soon. It already has a VIN. I ordered a Black Summit with sunroof. If you happen to be in the Bay area and are about to order the combo, you might want to ask the dealer about the one that is coming for me. It might save you some wait time. PM me for the dealer name.

While waiting for the Summit I became impatient and checked out a Cayenne S and QX56. Much to my surprise I ended up buying a fully loaded 2011 QX56 in platinum graphite. The interior quality and technology is just amazing and on-road driveability is truly stunning for a 6000 lb beast. It has 8500 lb towing capacity and apparently has considerable off-road potential. Based on pictures and reviews I didn't think I would like the exterior, but in person I thought everything but the side vents looked great.

I'm sad that I will be passing on the Summit because I think it is one of the coolest cars out there and I would have been proud to own one. Nevertheless, something about the interior, technology and driveability of the QX had me mesmerized and before I knew it I was signing the last signature line and handing over my check.

Thank you. I bought it despite the vents. I'm not sure what they were thinking there.

I thought the Cayenne was great but I have sports cars and wanted something with more luxury and interior space. The Cayenne interior is nice, but it doesn't compare to the fully optioned QX, which feels like a luxury jet cabin. Although the old QX shared platforms with the Armada, this QX is based on the Nissan Patrol, which is in an entirely different league.

Thanks. Did your friend's have the advanced suspension that comes with the touring package? I got all 3 major option groups but that was the one I thought was a must have. I drove one with and one without the advanced suspension and they felt dramatically different.

I believe it had the deluxe touring package. Looking back, it was a pretty cool car. Tint the front windows and you'll be looking sharp.

The deluxe touring has the wood around the steering wheel and the darker wood interior. It also has ventilated seats and lines on the seat back. Might help you remember. I think most people order/buy with that package and the theater package. Some skip on the tech package, but the adpative lights and ACC type functions were too cool to pass up for me.

I'm definitely going to tint and am also thinking of changing all the chrome to black "chrome".

I cancelled my order this morning for anyone who might be interested. the dealership is on Stevens Creek in San Jose.

After doing some research on the Nissan Patrol I learned that the QX is quite the incredible off-road SUV. The Patrol seems like it is quite revered for its capabilities in the middle east:
